Aunt Mary will always be remembered with good thoughts. I spent many a good time with her and Uncle Louie. I remember how my mom and dad used to love to go play hearts at your house and the meals we shared there. I never heard and unkind word from her and she always made me feel welcome. She was a fine lady. Bob Sorrell ( Indianapolis, IN )

Everett, Scott and I express our deepest sympathy to you and your family in the loss of your mother. She was such a beautiful person, both inside and out, and we are blessed to have been in her life. Her zest for life has truly been an inspiration to us and she will be deeply missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all in this time of great loss.

I remember Aunt Mary as the most creative of my aunts. She was very good at art (taking classes at the Indpls Art League) and always had the most interesting and delightful dishes in her home, at the Anderson Reunion and all pitch-ins. Sincerely, Jean
